Here's a good one - more points at two thirds stage of this season than two managers managed in a whole season last time around . :D

Just updating this Championship milestone thing I've been chucking on twitter since Xmas, Ipswich max possible points is now the 61 we've currently got. I'm sure there's a point in the head to heads somewhere which means they mathematically can't win the league still but having checked it's technically possible for all of the current top 6 to finish on a max of 61.

Pointless as it was to check that, I found it vaguely interested that Norwich biggest remaining game is against 5th placed Bristol (this month, at home). They're away to Boro end of March and that's them done against sides in the top 7. We still have 3rd, 4th and 5th to play.

So, we’re fucked?

So, they have to play two of the top 7, and we have to play three.

I'm still looking at it as a 2 tiered thing - the gap from 4th to 5th has eroded because of Bristol's improbably form but West Brom are far far stronger on paper. We have to play 2 of the 3 in top 4 with us, they don't.

Yeah, I get your drift.
Personally I think we have nothing to fear from any of them. If we beat any of them it makes it all the harder for them, and a draw is much better for us than for them.
We are still in the boss seat, we can afford a slip up or two, they can't so much.

Yeah, fair enough really but given we'll most likely be 3rd by the start of our next game I'm mostly in the glass half empty camp at the moment. 1 point from 6 against Norwich and Boro was below what needs to be done, we've now got 2 games we must win before West Brom followed by Bristol (surely their run must have ended by then though?). As Eric said earlier, see how the land lies then.

There’s one of those prediction tables based on an unspecified algorithm going around on Twitter this morning and it suggests that the table will finish thusly:

I don’t know what the above is based on but I have to admit this ties in with how I’ve assumed things would pan out in terms of final positions for a while. This scenario presents the play-offs as being a rocky but not insurmountable challenge.

that's not unfair. blunts, boro, & bristol... we're not exactly talking 'the invincibles' here...

a strange [to me] thing is the way that Stoke looked so good against us & then just sank without a trace, getting hardly any points at all.

I’ve been to this fixture several seasons running and also went to the cup match earlier this year too. Just need a break from it for a bit.

Agreed. It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that we might beat these teams (and also Derby) but I don’t fancy us against West Brom or Norwich, both of whom I suspect have our number.

It’s the source of no little frustration to me that teams seem to raise their game according to perceived status rather than league position. Everyone seems to want to beat us because it’s us, whereas as we saw from this past weekend, lesser teams seem to capitulate to the other promotion chasing teams because they are sort of a shrug in the grand scheme of football.

Now on 1.94ppg or 89(.2) projected total for the season. Considering our form of late, that's OK.
